A Foreign Affair (1948) Not as good as it would have been some years later, when Wilder perfected his kind of cynical comedy. Here the Hollywood clich├ęs are given undue space, especially in the finale. Still watchable for the Dietrich songs and a handful of good lines. 7/10

The Bone Collector (1999) Run-of-the Mill thriller, not as good as the novel. Washington is at his usual good, Jolie can't play and doesn't show skin. 7/10

Morocco (1930) High-Class melodrama, with three perfect leads. The last shot is unforgettable (in fact it was the only thing I remembered of the movie I saw decades ago). 8/10

Anna Christie (1930) A veritable piece of crap. But Garbo makes it watchable (once) not for her playing (extremely ridiculous in the confession scene) but her looks, of course. 6/10

Twilight Zone: Rod Serling's Lost Classics (1994)

It includes 3 episodes: the pilot:

The Time Element

Good, well played.

The Theatre

Run-of-the-mill.

 Where the Dead Are
Too long and quite unoriginal.

Camille (1936) I don't like Garbo's hair-do, with all those curls, they detract from her beauty and makes them look older. Cukor's direction is as usual impeccable, with some touch of creative art like in the the scene where Daniels plays the piano while listening to Garbo's lies. But the story is still for the romantic female audience. Not for me, though Verdi managed to create a masterpiece out of it. 7/10

In the dvd it is also included the 1921 version featuring Rodolfo Valentino. A festival of overplaying especially by the star Nazimova which constantly spills into the ridiculous. And sets are really poor compared to those of the later version.

Anna Karenina (1935) The Selznick touch it is evident in some of the lavish scenes, but I think that March is miscast: he can't be that glamorous as Taylor will be in Camille, though he's extraordinary as Rathbone and Garbo (I don't like her hair-do though it is better  than in Camille). 7/10

The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939) A great love story movie and a formidable performance by Davis. And Flynn. The battle scenes though are poor: you take a theatrical text and put it on the screen to what end if not to spectacularize it? 8/10

The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) One of the great Tecnicolor movies, a feast for the eye. Unfortunately the dialogues are brilliant only in the first scene between Flynn and Rains. 7/10

The Sea Wolf (1940) Only the initial sea battle is worth watching. The rest you have already seen it before. 5/10

Man Bites Dog (1992) The idea was good but was developed the wrong direction. Instead of concentrating on the "reasonings" of the killer, they should have shown more killings and the various murdering techniques, while keeping the interesting turn of the increasing involvement of the crew in the homicidal feats. 6/10

Tales of Terror (1962) The Black Cat is the best of the three episodes, thanks to Lorre: the wine tasting competition is a classic with  Price hamming it shamefacedly. 8/10

The Last Voyage (1960) Not just a good disaster movie but a great thriller: it grips from the very first minute and doesn't let you go. 10\10

Where the Truth Lies (2005) Usual mystery with usual plot twist (the last one is easily predictable) and usual OST, but this one has a lot of flesh of beautiful girls on display so it does earn a 7/10.
